Stokes stepped up to send Craig Gordon the wrong way in the Celtic goal and make it 2-1 to the holders.
But Moussa Dembele restored their two-goal lead shortly after, tapping home after Scott Sinclair’s sclaffed shot found him free in the six-yard box.
Hibs have cut that lead again, with Oli Shaw’s nice finish, though, and it’s the Easter Road side who are kicking on trying to find at least an equalising goal before full-time.
If they can, you just never know what could happen in extra time.
